I am a avid user of Pai Skincare,
however it took me a while to get around to trying this hand cream.
I have been using it for a few months now and it is marvellous stuff. The cold weather had really taken it's toll on my hands, I have dry skin on my hands anyway and although I use hand cream regularly, nothing seemed to be tackling my really dry skin and it had started to become very red, chapped & quite sore, especially across my knuckles and apart from being very uncomfortable it was looking really unsightly too.
My hope was Pai would come to the rescue and my, did they ever with this hand cream!
As soon as it arrived I got some onto my hands and I was amazed, just one application of this cream immediately soothed my horribly chapped skin and took down the redness, not entirely of course but it was certainly noticeable.
The skin looked better certainly moisturised and felt better too, rather than that horrible scratchy dry skin it felt smoother, Ok not normal skin smooth but softer than it had been.
I have to say I was really quite shocked no cream I have ever used has ever had such a effect on my skin in such a short space of time.
I continued to use the hand cream and within a week my hands were looking much improved and by two weeks the skin was back to normal.
I applied one pump in the morning and at night and as required throughout the day especially after washing my hands.
This cream is of course my favourite hand cream, and although my hands are back to normal now I still continue to use and love it.
The cream itself , is of course suitable for sensitive skin and is a thickish lotion but it's not greasy or sticky, it sinks straight into your hands and really gives them a good dose of moisture but leaves the skin feeling and looking absolutly beautiful ~ soft & supple and velvety.
One full pump.
At first I needed a full pump for my hands but now with continued use, half a pump is plenty for during the day, I do use a full one overnight to really give my hands a good treat! It's also good for dry cuticles, really softens them too.
One full pump spread out - you can see this is plenty of cream!
The ingredients in this cream are superb, its crammed full of gorgeous botanical oils & extracts, and in particular the Fragonia Oil has anti inflammatory and anti bacterial properties - just what sore skin needs, as well as helping to fortify the skin.
Every botanical ingredient is aimed at soothing, nourishing, softening and promoting good skin health, and as an extra bonus it's anti ageing too ~ soft well conditioned skin will show the signs of ageing less than dry crispy prune like skin.
I'm at the age now where I am concerned about ageing and hands are one of the first areas to show your true age and once they are showing it, there's very little, if anything that can be done to reverse it.
But let's not get too hung up on that, after all we're all going to age, it's an inevitable part of life, but certainly looking after your hands and skin in general will keep it more youthful for longer!
I can thoroughly, thoroughly recommend this hand cream, especially if you suffer from any sort of dry or chapped skin, but even if you don't this cream is more than suitable for absolutely everyone.
